    Honestly, at this moment, I'm not sure about the modification. But I will mod it now, or sometime in the near future.
    I've got a Sapphire Dual-X Radeon R9-280. The black and grey combination. My whole PC is in Black and Red combination.
    I'd like some ideas for modding the GPU. If anyone wants a better idea of how it looks now, I'll post some pictures in sometime. Has anyone modded a Sapphire Dual-X R9 cards before? If you can please post some pictures.

    one way is to paint the shroud, other is to selectively paint the fan blade(s) or whole fan. how crazy you want to go? :D

    Linus has a great guide on how to plasti-dip components to match various color scheme.

    It would be great if you can briefly explain how to do those mods. This would be my first mod, so I don't want to go all crazy on it. But I don't have any warranty on it, so I thought I'll go really crazy on it. But again, I am not in a situation to buy another GPU if anything happens to this. So I'll go all crazy unless it is safer than a little crazy but dangerous.
